“Yummy Food, Service So-So”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

couple of my friends and I tried this restaurant.....food is omnomnom but they could've been more forthcoming with their service. We had to call out at least five times before someone would notice us (and the restaurant must have had about ten other people)

“Ask for the Chinese menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

We read a recommendtion in the Lonely Planet and decided to try out the sea cucumber. We were a bit disappointed not to find it on the menu and enquired with the waitress who brought us the chinese menu which had various other treats not on the regular (tourist) menu. We asked the very efficient waitress what she would suggest for first timers and she suggested the braised sea cucumber which was delicious - the consistency of cartilage, served with minced chicked in a soy based sauce. We had this along with seafood chowmein and small lobster (which was a good size). Portions were excellent and we got a serve of steamed rice with each dish so we couldn't finish it all. Service was friendly and probably the most efficient in Fiji. Would edefinitely recommend this.

“A surprise find in Nadi town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

It was surprising to find a Chinese restaurant in Nadi Town. Being Chinese and having been spoiled by the variety of quality Chinese restaurants in Canada (Vancouver & Toronto), my husband and I definitely didn't know what to expect in terms of the quality, service, and selection of food.

Considering the location of this restaurant (in the midst of non-Chinese region), the food was relatively authentic... although a bit on the oily side. Local Chinese families did dine there, which was a good sign. The seafood was fresh, especially with the conch (being from North America, it took us a while to get used to the rock lobster, and the fact that they had deshelled the lobster for us and cooked it).

The service was great, and the restaurant was clean. A good and surprise find for us while exploring Nadi Town (which was mainly closed on the Sunday late afternoon we were there, around 4pm). However, the atmosphere is so-so as the restaurant is huge but the decor is a bit old (even the furniture is solid quality old Chinese wood furniture). It actually felt like we were in a 70s themed Chinese restaurant.
